Located in the heart of Beauforts National Historic Landmark District. This fully restored ca. 1820 guest house is part of a complex that includes ca. 1790 main house, green house and carriage house, all tucked into a fenced 1 acre parcel. The property has been the subject of numerous publications to include Traditional Home Magazine, Coastal Living, South Carolina Home and 2 episodes of House And Garden TV.
Sensitively restored, it has a full kitchen and bath. In addition to the single bedroom there is a loft with double futon. equiped with cable TV ,WIFI and IPHONE dock. Ideally located on a quiet side street you are only a five minute walk from downtown shopping, dining and waterfront park. I have a very friendly Golden Retriever and with the large fenced yard welcome well behaved pets.
I cannot say enough about our stay in this cottage. Mike and the dogs made our trip so wonderful. We enjoyed getting to know them as well as enjoying the town of Beaufort. We ran a 5k in Beaufort that weekend and spent days in Bluffton, Hilton Head, and even Charleston. This is a great place to stay as well as centrally located to many other wonderful towns. We walked to dinner at night when we didn't cook in the kitchen. I really miss Keegan and Tucker the two Golden Retrievers. We will come back!!
This is our second stay here in this cabin. It is perfectly located, clean, comfortable and relaxing. The grounds are spectacular and if you like sweet dogs, there are two that are the icing on the cake. The waterfront is an easy walk nearby and I was able to run along the water to curb the effects of all the good southern food in the area. The owner is extremely accommodating and laid back and just an all around nice guy. We will definitely be back and hope the cabin is available as this is a find and a keeper for us.
This is a enchanting wee little cottage in the Historic District of Beaufort. It is decorated in the period of 1820 and well done. The cottage is charming and the gardens beautiful and tranquil . The location makes it a easy walk
(7 minutes to down-town ) with nice little shops and river -side restaurants. Michael was a gracious host and made us feel at -ease and truly welcomed us to his home and gardens. Michael`s Golden Retriever Keegan was very friendly and happily shared his yard with our older Australian Shepherd.We are looking forward to next visit.
My wife recently retired and I have "downsized" from my work and needed a location to check out Beaufort for three weeks with our 9 month golden, Grace. The cottage, though small, was perfect size for us, and Grace enjoyed the freedom of the fenced yard and the attentions of Keegan, Michael's golden.
In the heart of the Historic District, several blocks to the waterfront and outdoor seating restaurants and shops was very walkable for Grace and ourselves.
As noted, Michael was very tolerant of Grace's "invasion" of the big house to search for Keegan and quite accommodating in pointing the way to various attractions. A shout out needs to go to Pam, the housekeeper as well. She was a great source of information and entertainment and friendliness.
Lovely grounds, Vicki came home with new concepts for our yard. Look forward to returning soon!
What a lovely location! What lovely accommodation! We really enjoyed the ambiance of the cottage - a quiet, comfortable, and relaxing spot. Pleasant, sunny, quaint kitchen - we like to cook! The garden is a treat - to be able to sit on the veranda, in view of the open grassed courtyard and be surrounded by beautiful trees and shrubs and enjoy the surroundings. This is a great walking district with amazing houses; so much history. It's an easy drive to Hilton Head or Savannah, if you want to explore further.
The location is idyllic, the guest house is idyllic, and our stay was idyllic. Michael has filled the house with beautiful antiques, books,and a great bed with nice linens, which is very important to us. Our two shih tzu also fell in love with the large yard, beautiful gardens, and Michael's dog Keegan. (Michael was very gracious when our little Willie slipped into his beautiful home more than once looking for Keegan.) So many of Beaufort's historical sites and restaurants are within walking distance; I cannot imagine a better place to stay. As we leave, a little piece of our heart will be left behind in Michael's perfect guest cottage.
